NIS America has announced that Disgaea 5 Complete for Steam has been delayed until Summer 2018 due to unforeseen problems. The port was originally expected to launch next week on May 7. The niche publisher also posted information about the delay on their official blog.
Here is the press release statement on the delay, in full:
Thank you everyone for your enthusiasm regarding the Disgaea 5 Complete release on PC.
As beta testing has been ongoing, we have been fixing bugs and issues as they were discovered. While working on corrections last night, we came across a new issue that requires additional attention that will take more time to resolve. Unfortunately, until this issue can be resolved, the release date will be postponed, and we are now targeting a release for Summer 2018. We offer our sincerest apologies to all who have been looking forward to this release of the game.
Currently, we have had to disable all demo keys that have been distributed. Once we have determined the game is ready for launch, we will open a new demo that will require the use of new keys.
At this time, we would also like to address the concerns of our fans who pre-purchased this title. We will be posting updates as we continue to resolve the issue. The game can be re-installed as soon as the issues have been corrected. We understand that the change in release timing may affect user experience, so as an alternative, we will also be presenting a refund option.

Here is a message from NIS America COO, Mitsuharu Hiraoka:
“We thank you all for the support we have been given while we have been working towards the release of Disgaea 5 Complete for PC, and we wish to show our gratitude by providing our fans with the best quality game on the PC platform. We hope that you continue to look forward to this release as we proceed to work tirelessly to correct this issue.”
